Eritrea's Gedem Cement Factory Is Exporting Cement to Qatar


Gedem (near Massawa) Cement Factory 

Eritrea's Gedem Cement Factory Is Exporting Cement to Qatar


Gedem Cement Factory has been exporting part of its output to Qatar for the construction of stadiums for the World Cup football championship in 2022, according to a report by the Africa Energy Intelligence.

The report also said part of Asmara's electrical issues for the last few months  — which have since been resolved — was partly attributed to the rise in demand from the factory.

Located near Massawa, the factory produces 32,000 bags (16,000 quintals) of cement per day and produces three types of cement namely, OPC, sulphur-resistant cement and pozzolan cement.

Currently, the factory employs over 300 nationals.

  1. The Gedem cement factory has a life span of 30-40 years. The factory will help sustain Eritrea's GDP growth for decades to come and keep housing costs down since much of the material needed to build infrastructure will be provided domestically. I believe the 1,680 modern homes and shops being constructed in Asmara are also using material from the factory. This is a gift that keeps on giving to Eritrea's economy.

  6. for you to think every Eritrean has to agree with you shows your lack of understanding of democracy and freethinking,but since you are hegdefawi i do not expect anything less,there is many of us out here we like to express our opinion because we have earn it meaning we have fought and defend Eritrea ,but we still remain defenceless and you call us woyane,Ethiopians etc..but time will tell who is real who is not

  7. selamyukun, your illiterate response exposes you as a Shmelba graduate totally immersed in the Woyane provided defamatory misunderstanding of the word democracy. Democracy is a process of governance by the people for the people that starts at the grassroots level where peasants elect their own leaders, sub-zoba constituents elect their own leaders, zoba constituents elect their own leaders and so on including communities their own judges. IThis is happening in Eritrea. It is not like candies that leaders distribute to each and everyone. Democracy works where literacy is high and the majority are provided 12 years of education. In your Woyane land literacy is less that 2%. You have no democracy because Woyane said so and had itself elected in every position in the large poor country. Now that you have left Eritrea and claimed asylum, try to go to school and learn instead of wasting your time discussing a subject you do not understand.

  18. you people are you just shouting more for a single cement factory that produces only 16000 quintal cement perday.when the problem of electricity is raised the problem and consumptionof power is associated with gedem cement factory.when eritrean gdp groth is raised it is associated with gedem cement factory.when eritreas export is raised it is associted with gedem cement factory,when eritreas futurity is seen it associated with gedem cement factory.This all shows the poorness of eritrean economy and how the dictator Isayas is cheating the people.
    Look how many mega cement factories are built ,and how many are on the pipeline to be built in ethiopia.All these mega cement factories are still supplying the domestic market.

  19. I can assure you that this is not a fabricated news (I have no quotes or links for you, except ground facts). Although you many not support the current ways of the government, as many of us do, it is ERITREAN-LIKE to denounce your identity altogether. Hope you come to your Eritrean senses soon (if you truly are).

  20. Can you tell us why 20-year-old Eritrea exports more than twice as much as Ethiopia per capita? Why is 3000-year-old Ethiopia the worlds 2nd poorest country?

    Eritrea Exports Per Capita (2012): $69
    Population: 6.23 Million
    Exports: $434 Million
    (Exports/Population=EPC)
    ($434 Million/6.23 Million=69.66)
    https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/er.html

    Ethiopia Exports Per Capita (2012): $33
    Population: 93.87 Million
    Exports: $3.1 Billion
    (Exports/Population=EPC)
    ($3.1 Billion/93.87 Million=33.02)

  21. I can assure you that the news is not fabricated (it's not news per say, as it has been the case since mid 2012). You may not support the current ways of the government, many people - including myself - don't. But it is not ERITREAN-LIKE to denounce your identity altogether and consider it a shame. Hope you come to your Eritrean senses soon (if you truly are).

  22. You have to subscribe to see the entire content. I can assure you, it is there. I posted this information on the madote.com Facebook page nearly a year ago but this is the first time another source corroborated my source, so I felt it deserved a post on the website.

  23. The "single cement factory" produces enough for domestic markets and even for exports. While the many Ethiopian factories can't even satisfy the local market, let alone cover exports. It all depends of the size of the market. The advantage Eritrea has over Ethiopia is that its market is not bloated and does not require as much diversification as that of Ethiopia to stay afloat. Besides, who said that the economy of the country is centered on the factory?! Mining is currently the main vehicle. Other coffers like fisheries and tourism remain yet untapped.

  24. mickey, study scale of a market.many markets tn ethiopia,as you have said,are not satisfied by many cement factories in ethiopia.but the single cement factory in eritrea which produces 16000 quintal perday exportsmore than its half production.so the eritrean market is more than ethiopia.
    this is a fullish and illitrate conclsion ,whch is a refection of dormant PDFJ.
    Leave the PDFJ propaganda and see how the ethiopian economy is advancing.Why not many FDI projects in eritrea?,why not many invetments in eritrea? doyou have other exports beyond gold and copper which will be deploted soon.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The scale of the local market also applies to exports and GDP. As compared to the GDP the Eritrean market is more favorable than Ethiopia's (see comment by Facts).
    There aren't much FDI projects in Eritrea, because: (a) the illegal sanctions imposed on Eritrea and pursued fiercely by Ethiopia to hold the Eritrean economy hostage discourages foreign investors, (b) even so, we Eritreans favor being SELF-RELIANT, unlike Ethiopia which NEEDS these injections to stand on its frail economic limbs. Eritrea is not FDI junkie.
    The gold and copper being exported have high grade and quality, thus high value for money. And who said Eritrea is mining the last sites for this resources? Wishful thinking?

  28. I´m sorry if i join your discussion, but let me Tell you one shared view in our Nation, WE ARE NOT BLIND CAPITALIST ORIENTED COUNTRY, where less than 5% of the population is wealthy (most of all as you mention foreigners above all) and were other majority don´t have the minor facilities. We don´t need to copy any model, we have a taught tradition to keep menaging our Country..I don´t want to go far..

  29. Where did you get the idea that the Gold will finish soon? Let me burst your weyane bubbles then, bisha only have 13 years mine life but even now they are expanding their search so they will stay for much longer, but also there are another 23 companies are there in Eritrea investing and by 2017 four mining will be operational in Eritrea that is like a death sentence for people like you right haha
    And all of them are bigger than bisha, if you take for example the Asmara mining project only it's 3 times bigger than bisha but the biggest one so far is the cululi project, worth nearly a billion dollar to develop and it will be operational by 2016 owned 50% by the Eritrean government , mine life is 50 years, form that one single project Eritrea will expect from 800 million dollar a year. So before talking rubbish I advise you to do a lil be research

  30. So because you don't have any replies you resort to insults? Typical.

    It's ridiculous when an Ethiopian calls an Eritrean illiterate.

  33. Abay, the ruling party in Eritrea is PFDJ not PDFJ as you wrote above. This means you are stranger, probably woyane. Isn't the woyane led Ethiopia's 96% budget a foreign aid and isn't Addis ababa a city of 100 000 prostitutes and 1 million homeless most of them are Tegarus. Think of it Derbay woyane:
